This FireWire 400 card connects to a computer PCI Express (PCIe) slot to provide two FireWire 6-pin Female ports, making it easy to connect FireWire 400 devices even if the computer motherboard doesn't offer a FireWire port.
Delivering enhanced compatibility, reliability and energy efficiency, the card uses a native single chip design that offers superior performance compared to bridged chipset FireWire cards, allowing you to harness true PCI Express performance.
With support for full FireWire 400 data transfer rates of up to 400Mbps, this card is the ideal selection for connecting a broad range of devices including external hard drives, DV camcorders, HD video cameras, personal multimedia devices and more.
Not for linux
Pros: Works ok in windows
Cons: Does not work at all in Linux. (Ubuntu 9.04)
Other Thoughts: I decided to give this card a chance since almost no firewire cars say they work in linux and it was cheaper than most. It didnt work.

Pros: It's PCI Express and low profile for Dell Optiplex Small Form Factor Computers.
Cons: It's a low profile card, and the manufacture web site said it came with a low profile bracket. I spent 20 minutes in the garage with a hack saw and hammer forming a low profile bracket. I spent another 15 minutes trying to get it out of the welded packaging. After that, installation took about 1 minute.
Other Thoughts: Bought it for my Digidesign 003 Rack, it does support a large number of track recordings at one time. The card came with 2 1394 ports.
